Second Big News

Well here I am back again as promised!  This is my second post of the day if you are looking for my DT card for Cardmadfairy's please scroll down.

My big news is that I am so thrilled to have been chosen to be on the DT for Card Makin' Mamas!  I was delighted when I received the e mail to say I had been chosen!!  I was supposed to announce it yesterday but to be truthful I have been that rushed with having our Texan friends over that I just didn't have the time to post but better late never!!

For my first challenge with Card Makin' Mamas the theme is:


this is a lovely one and I am sure you can all come up with some beautiful creations with flowers somewhere on your card.  Here is mine:

This sweet little image is by Belles 'n Whistles and I have coloured her with my Copics and Prisma Pencils. She has been cut and matted with my Nesies - I put some Spun Sugar DI on the mat which you can just about see.  The border is made with my Edgeabilities, flowers are Memory Box and Magnolia Doohickey and dandelion clock is Memory Box.  The papers are by Papermania and they have sentiments to match which I have used here.  I added some Stickles to the dandelion clock and the ribbon is from my stash.  Here is another view:

We are being sponsored this week by Paper Issues.  So as long as your card has flowers on it you can enter the challenge over at Card Makin' Mamas so please pop over there and see what the rest of the lovely team have created and I am sure you will get loads of inspiration!! I would like to enter the following challenges:

Do You Stack Up? - Flowers
Forever Friends - Spring
Willow Sketchie - Handmade Flowers

I'll be back tomorrow, take care xx
